Taoiseach and Mayo native, Enda Kenny, will officially launch the new Home Instead Senior Care office on Monday, June 20. The launch event takes place at 10.00am at the new home care office in Moneen Industrial Estate, Castlebar.
Home Instead Senior Care is the largest home care provider in Ireland and Monday marks the opening of the organisation’s 22nd home care office in the country. The purpose of the organisation is to provide home care services to help older people maintain their independence and live at home for longer than otherwise possible.
The new office in Castlebar provides home care services throughout county Mayo which means older people in all 26 counties will be able to avail of quality and professional home care services. The new home care office in Castlebar is independently owned and operated by Oonagh Cox, a qualified nurse and trainer. "My team and I are thrilled to offer a quality home care service to older people in the local community. We are passionate about caring for older people and as a Mayo native, I know the area well and feel families will benefit from a combination of real local knowledge and a caring, quality home care service," she said.
"Having someone like Enda Kenny on hand to celebrate the launch of Home Instead Senior Care in Mayo has really helped us generate awareness of the home care service. Considering the Taoiseach is the most successful leader in Fine Gael history, I could not ask for a better person to support the expansion of home care services in Mayo," she added.
Since setting up in Ireland in 2005, Home Instead Senior Care has provided care for almost 4,500 people and has employed over 4,000 professional caregivers. With the new home care office in Castlebar, this growth is set to continue and will provide a further jobs boost to the local economy.
